...and chapter 56!

They really are a family, and it's always heartening to see how their closeness fulfills so many of their needs, both emotional and practical. And no, Wes and Edna are definitely not ignorant old fuddy-duddies:laugh:

Yay for Sgt. Dupree!  I'll bet Jeremy will be so happy to have Ellery back at work he won't mind doing his paperwork - at least for a little while!  Thanks, Louise!

ok here we go, chapter 57!

http://louisev.livejournal.com/302724.html#cutid1

SPOILERS





Once again .............. all roads lead to Ellery!!!!  Paula wouldn't make a good poker player, that's for sure, but at least she doesn't beat around the bush, as Henry noted.   It's interesting to compare her ruminations about Ellery with Esteban's.  There's just something about that man that inspires loyalty and admiration, but there's a certain amount of resentment of him, too.   

And now that there is going to be even more Ellery talk, I'm not sure if they'll ever get past the "business" part of their night!  Or maybe it'll be good for Paula to vent? But I have to believe that being the Main Topic of Conversation at their dinner is something that could put both of them out of Ellery's good graces.   :-\   What a fascinating cast of characters!  Thanks, Louise.

...and chapter 56!

http://louisev.livejournal.com/302396.html

Wow, this was a truly heartwarming chapter, despite all the worrying that's going on too.

“Edna’s tryin ta say in her oh-so-subtle way that she knows we both play second fiddle ta you in Ellery’s heart, so don’t take us for ignorant old fuddy-duddies, Colson,” Wes grumbled, but then gave Colson a big smile. “He is lucky to have ya, a yer lucky ta have him. We’re all lucky ta have em.”

*sigh* All the words that Colson needs to hear right now. Gotta love Wes and Edna.

And LOL at Colson's 'tying to the bed' comment!  :laugh: Poor Edna.  ;D

A great chapter Louise. Thanks!  :)

Love the dialogue!!!  You don't write their words, you channel them, and I don't read them, I hear them.  Poor boys.  On top of all the worry, wondering what Ellery is keeping from him is eating at Colson something awful.  And on top of all the pain, wondering what the hell is real and what is imagined is eating at Ellery something awful.  Hope they both can put their minds to rest soon so they can get to some grabbin and makin kissy faces!  Then we'll know for sure everything's as it should be!  :laugh:  Thanks, Louise!

Hehehehe, the things I like writing best are those moments alone between Colson and Ellery.  They are heartbroken when they are apart and keeping things from one another, but it sure makes for good drama, don't it?

I have to do a bit more housework today (it's my week) and I may feel inspired to get to the next chapter by then! whoo hoo! thanks for the comments, I thrive on them!!
